A book for young readers, parents and teachers that teaches the basic principles of biology through fun and educational experiments, which can be performed at home or in the classroom with simple, common equipment. Two main sections cover plants and animals. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the principle to be studied (such as plant structure, tropism, anatomy or animal chemistry), followed by a short series of experiments which demonstrate that principle.
